Our guest this week is Judge John Denson, the great war historian and lawyer who helped Lew Rockwell found the Mises Institute in the early 1980s.

In celebration of Christmas, Judge Denson and I discuss the infamous World War I truce that took place between British and German soldiers in December of 1914 — and how the 20th century may have been radically different, and radically less bloody, if that truce had brought about an early end to the war. We also discuss the critical importance of historical revisionism, and why a more peaceful future depends on all of us questioning official history and state propaganda.

Stay tuned for a great and hopeful interview.
